Time to Color My Hair!

I have been waiting for a good hair color deal for a LONG time. Too long.  My grays are really showing these days.

I’m kind of new to coloring my hair.  The first time I did it was the week I turned 30 (I’m now 34).  I try to be pretty low-maintenance, so I didn’t want to get into a habit of going to a salon and shelling out lots of money on a regular basis just to get rid of my grays.  Don’t get me wrong.  I have no problem if YOU do it!!  In fact, I might envy your cute highlights.  I just have a hard time forking over the cash.  It makes me sick to my stomach to think about it.  LOL!

I read an article in a magazine a few years ago about what the best brands of hair color are for different types of hair.  It recommended Garnier Nutrisse for my hair, so I went out and bought a box and have never looked back!  I typically get the kind with Avocado Oil and go with the darkest color with a white gal on the box.  Actually, one time I went with a box with a black gal on it, and my hair turned out cute with that color, too!  Every once in a while, I go with a little lighter color, but most of the time I stick with Dark Natural Brown.  My hair stylist is a hair color diva (that’s her email address, actually!), and she says that it’s working great for me, so to just keep doing what I’m doing.  Whew!

Okay, so like I said, I NEEDED hair color.  I usually buy it at Safeway when they are having a BOGO deal, but I haven’t seen one lately.  THEN, on Saturday night I started seeing Rite Aid match-ups on my coupon blogs that listed Garnier hair color!!  Wheee!

I ended up with this:

The Garnier hair color is on sale for $5.99 at Rite Aid this week!  AND, there are coupons for this variety – the HerbaShine!!  PLUS there is a $5 +UP reward when you spend $15 on Garnier.

I only have 1 computer, and you can print 2 copies of the same type of coupon from a single computer.  To get the second coupon, you just wait until the first one has printed and then use your browser’s back button to print again, or just go back to the site and check the little box and click “print” again.  There will be different numbers on each coupon to ensure that they are legit.  (NEVER make a photocopy of a coupon.  That is fraudulent!!)

All that hair color for only $6.96!  That’s $1.74 per coloring!! (I could probably do it for less if I went to a beauty store and bought the ingredients and blah, blah, blah.  I know.  However, I like having directions to follow.  LOL!)
